Yusuf Chambers: Dr Zakir, Such an important topic. ‘The month of Repentance.’ Let’s start of by asking you a fundamental question. What is the meaning of the word Tawbah? And both in general terms I want to know it and in the Islamic context, please.
Dr. Zakir: The Arabic word Tawbah, literally means to return or to come back. And in the Islamic context, in the Shariah it means a person who leaves the things which Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has prohibited and he returns back to the things which Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has commanded. So in short it means a person leaving the acts which Allah has prohibited and he returns back to the acts which Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has commanded. And this aspect of Tawbah or repentance is present in all the religions that believe in the concept of God. And Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala speaks about Tawbah and repentance in the Quran in several places including
Surah Noor Chapter 24 verse no. 31
Where Allah says:
“O you who believe, turn all together in repentance to Allah, so that you may attain bliss.”
Allah repeats a similar message in Surah Al Baqarah chapter 2 verse 222, where Allah says
“Allah loves those who turn to Him in repentance and Allah loves those who are clean and pure.”
And a similar message is given, in the Hadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) , it’s mentioned in
Sahih Al Bukhari volume no. 8, Book of Supplications Hadith number 6309, where our beloved Prophet (Sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) said
“Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is more pleased when his servant seeks repentance than any one of you, when he finds his camel which has been lost in the desert.”
That means Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is very pleased when any one seeks His repentance, asks for forgiveness and He forgives them. So in short Tawbah means repentance which means leaving the act which is prohibited by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and returning back to the acts which he has commanded. In short it is a journey from the disliked to the thing which is liked by Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala
Yusuf Chambers: SubhanAllah, may Allah accept our Tawbah in that case
Dr. Zakir: InshaAllah.
